How to appeal for a place at our academy

 

If you have applied and been refused a place at our academy (in any year group), you are entitled to appeal against that decision.

 

Appeals for PDET academies are administered by The Diocese of Peterborough Education team. For more information on the process please see:

https://www.peterborough-diocese.org.uk/parents/appeals

 

If you wish to appeal please contact the Appeals Administrator and ask for an appeals pack. Contact Alex Benoy at education@peterborough-diocese.org.uk.

 

The pack includes some explanatory notes about the process of Admission Appeals and a Notice of Appeal form that, should you decide to proceed with an appeal, will need to be completed and returned by email if possible, but if not, to the Diocesan Office instead.
